Local source for recycled denim insulation?

OK, green-building EnviroMoms, here's a good question from Leah:

We need to insulate a small attic space above our office and we're curious about recycled denim insulation. Do you know where we can find it here in pdx and what the cost is in relation to the pink stuff? Any info you guys have got is appreciated. Thanks!

My husband and I insulated our home two summers ago and used cellulose, which is shredded newspaper. We've been thrilled with how snug our house is now. (We used a company called Air Tight Insulation from Vancouver.) Ecohaus, formerly Environmental Building Supplies in SE Portland, carries cotton batting made from denim scraps on their Web site and lists prices. They are a great place to start. Anyone had this installed before?
